charter schools into the system we are seriously considering that. he runs a rapidly growing network of charter schools. rendell says the proof is in the pudding. not everyone agrees, many parents say that charter schools train badly needed resources from neighborhood schools and the chicago teachers union says it's an attempt to privatize the public school system. mayor ron emanuel says it's all about the kids into providing an array of strong educational options to parents. although he has a vested interest in the expansion

little bit warmer we had wind gusts to 40 mi. per hour today in some areas. you can almost see this system right here marking the leading edge of the cool air high pressure behind it. these are going to pass across the area and they will be gone by morning. this is the big deal out to the west, the rains have been hammering lust vegas today. there was actually flooding in that area. we look at the three-dimensional structure of these storms you can see why these have been raining heavily and we have some

9:35pm
9:36pm
gecko (clearing throat) thank you, mr. speaker, uh members of congress. in celebration of over 75 years of our government employees insurance company, or geico...as most of you know it. ...i propose savings for everyone! i'm talking hundreds here... and furthermore.. newcaster: breaking news. the gecko is demanding free pudding. and political parties that are actual parties!
9:37pm
with cake! and presents! ah, that was good. too bad nobody could hear me. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. >> more people signed up for medicare advantage after the change. >> mr. vice president i know you were under a lot of dress to make a... but i think we would be better served if we don't keep interrupting each other. feisty, it was that kind of debate a little bit of a slug fest here and there but overall each candidate making points as well as it possibly can who will let you decide americans gathered in front of the tv to watch the debate in their homes.
9:38pm
students at northwestern university watched together on the evanston campus and dan ponce de is with them. of course some of the smartest and most politically engaged students in chicago are here at northwestern. we will start with this young man. who would do say won this debate? >> i would say chow biden won because he had a lot more detailed specifics into ryan didn't seem to have any. the smirking didn't bother you? >> he had a reason to. >> i'm a sophomore i think paul ryan won the debate, just because joe didn't seem to take the debate as seriously as i would have liked paul ryan spoke calmly and rationally.
9:39pm
>> what moment in the debate stuck out for you? >> i would have to say that the vice president wanted to although with it in the amount of fighting the partisan is probably for their candidates my favorite moment was at the end when he spoke very very personally about the middle class and when he was talking about how they were pushed into the 47%. >> i think the vice president won the debate i think he was just clearly more in control of the debate, i thought that his experience in politics really showed and i thought ryan did a good job as well but he clearly just didn't stand a chance against the vice president. for a very smart students here it sounds like it's 3-1 in favor of the vice-president we will send it back to you. joining us now
9:40pm
with more analysis is paul lisneck as we said coming out of the bat you saw the vice president saying that is a bunch of malarkey right off of the bat. it's more likely to be conversational. nevertheless being at the table did not keep them from going after each other. a little bit different than last week. she also got to her agenda she had nine different topics i was surprised at how much foreign policy was discussed. she is a foreign policy reporter so we had a little more than i would have expected and i say that because if most people at home are basing their decisions on the economy and jobs and you probably wanted the debate to go more in that direction. first,
9:41pm
style clearly vice-president by then it seemed like he was trying to dominate unlike the way president obama was not able to during his debate you can counter with a laughing and the interrupting was router not that will be up for heavy debate no pun intended but content was reducing one? the fact checkers will come into play and we will see tomorrow we didn't hear anything new we heard the same lines we heard chow challenge paul ryan and he concentrated more on mitt romney is position which makes sense he did get some zingers in there about how he may have changed his positions, paul ryan got a good line in there which is we all sort of regret things we say from time to time but i will say this is a very substantive conversation i think paul ryan really stuck to facts and figures and numbers and chow was more emotional. >> but he always is. several
9:42pm
times he knew how to work the camera i was bothered stylistically and they should have known it would be on a split screen that constant laughter smile on his face a combination of nervousness or i have a point to make. it was even more than a laughter and a smile it was... it was very animated. >> for my taste it was too much. we are told everything is going bad with 5.2 million new private-sector jobs, we need more but 5.2 million if they would get out of the way and let us pass the tax cuts to the middle class and make it permanent if they get out of the way and let us allow 14 million people who are struggling to stay in their homes because their mortgages are upside down but they never missed the mortgage payment. that line
9:43pm
almost a tagline or a mantra, get out of the way and i think it was one of his stronger moments because essentially what he said is he cannot blame the president when you have a republican congress that will not do anything we can make things happen if you get out of the way. >> let me tell you about the mitt romney i know, this is a guy who i was talking to a family in northborough massachusetts here today their kids were hit in a car crash four of them to have them robb and reid were paralyzed the romney's didn't know them as they went to the same church but they never met before. i know you are struggling mark romney said don't worry about their
9:44pm
college i will pay for it. romney doesn't tell the stories, the family told the story and when they did he said it wasn't that help or that cash to give his time. >> ever since the republican convention clearly the advisers tell him that. always a story always emotional. they got choked up so now he passes it to paul ryan. the baseball playoffs
9:45pm
